BEST TITLE SCREAM MOMENT(S)

(delivered to babies in hospital room) “I used to be like you, a long time ago. People look at you and think of how wonderful your future will be. They want you to be something special, like a doctor or a lawyer. I hate to tell you this, but if you grow up here, you’re more likely to end up selling your bodies on the streets or selling dope from dirty needles in a bus stop and if you’re successful you’ll make money selling junk to crackheads and you won’t think twice about killing someone’s wife or even know it was wrong in the first place. Maybe you’ll end up like me, a HOBO… WITH A SHOTGUN!!

The much lauded film directed by Martin Scorsese (adapted from the novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick) has also been well regarded by the 31st Silver Lenas nominators in the ‘Best’ and ‘Technical, Artistic and Not Quite Human’ Awards sections. While the movie isn’t up for, say, as many as at the 2012 Academy Awards (a leading 11) It has still been clearly appreciated here, one of three films nominated for the top awards of both Best Film and Best Director (it’s up against both Incendies and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy for those two particular top awards). Interestingly enough, however, it was not nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Hugo’s nominations are listed below:

Best Film

Best Director Martin Scorsese

Best Supporting Actress Chloe Moretz

Best Visual Effects

The “Eric Stoltz’s Head” Award For Widescreen Composition
